Though there are many apps for teaching the alphabet, Animal Alphabet HD distinguishes itself as one of the best. The deceptively simple title refers to an alphabet enriched by gorgeously illustrated animals who perform tricks for alphabet explorers. In fact, the app is themed as a wondrous carnival side show, complete with a baby bear on a unicycle for the letter B, a confrontational ostrich for O, and a coy chameleon for C. An effervescent voice-over alliteratively introduces each creature, and many screens include a fun fact, framed as a circus-style pitch, about the animal. Each of the twenty-six letter screens offers unique interactive features, encouraging even children and adults who know the alphabet well to explore the app carefully. Using the app is a beautiful and engaging experience that parents will want to share their children
